So who else? O'bama/Moslem after 9/11 I can understand why the country should have looked at him. He was tied to every moslem extremist in Chicago.
tied to? by whom? not that it matters. not enough 'whom' that it matters.

it's still funny, even after 5 years, to watch a group of grown people act like everyone is paying attention to what they're saying.

If the US tax system encourages taxpayers to park their assets in foreign accounts, perhaps something is wrong with the US tax system.
Yes, Republicans keep passing laws that give therm a tax advantage for doing so.

Corporations currently are not taxed on foreign made profits until they bring those profits back.

Thanks to your Republicans, Galt.

Signing the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, President Clinton put the Community Reinvestment Act on steroids.
Did you even try to confirm it?
Liar.

All the Gramm-Leach-Blily Act did was extend the CRA to the newer mortgage institution that the bill created when it tore down the wall between banks & investment houses.

That tearing down was a major factor in the near financial meltdown, not the expansion of the CRA to these newer mortgage institutions.

Boring...just stop spending more than income...problem solved.


After decades of running up the debt under Presidents like Reagan, we finally had a balanced budget at the end of the Clinton administration. Galt should have been happy.

This is what each & every one of you right whiners claim to want.

Then came Bush. You f*cking idiots voted for him....twice. You still support the Republican Party that enabled Bush to nearly kill this country creating the worst recession on 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial; meltdown & two quagmire wars.

Yeah, boy, the banks intentionally created bad loans so that they could buy them up, become insolvent, and need a government bailout.
Makes lots of sense, to idiots like you, boy.
Galt too uninformed top know that those that wrote those bad loans sold them so why did thy care?

Those that bought them wrapped them in mortgage based securities where there was a demand. So why should they care if they were bad?

Many of the "bad" loans weren't bad until housing prices started to decline in mid 2006.

Galt is an idiot.

No, Bill Clinton Didn’t Balance the Budget...

Gingrich’s finest hour as Speaker came in March 1995 when he rallied the entire Republican House caucus behind the idea of eliminating the deficit within seven years.

It's the culture...

The House’s rejection of the farm bill by a 195 to 234 vote on Thursday was a stunning defeat for Speaker John Boehner, who supported the legislation and brought it to the House floor for a vote. Mr. Boehner was unable to win support from 62 Republicans on the party’s conservative fringe, who cast no votes because they believed the $20.5 billion cut in the food stamps program did not go deep enough. Nearly all Democrats also voted no because that draconian cut would have eliminated food assistance for nearly two million people.

It appears some Democrats, who might have voted for the House bill, were repelled by a last-minute Republican amendment that added a punitive work requirement to food stamp eligibility rules. That came on top of an offensive amendment Republicans pushed through on Wednesday to authorize states to conduct drug testing of food stamp applicants, despite studies showing they are no more likely than nonbeneficiaries to be using drugs.

A Hew Hampshire state representative resigned Thursday after alleging that the Boston Marathon bombing was a government conspiracy, WMUR reported.

State Rep. Stella Tremblay (R) sent in her letter of resignation to the New Hampshire House of Representatives a day after she sent an e-mail blast to colleagues with links to Boston Marathon bombing conspiracy blogs and videos.

"Have you seen ANY main stream media doing a follow-up on these stories? I have not. I just connect the dots," wrote Tremblay in the e-mail, according to WMUR. "Apparently, it is very dangerous to seek truth, or ask questions."

Tremblay first floated her theory that the marathon bombings were planted by the government to sideline civil liberties in April. Her colleagues in the House responded by voting to fully rebuke her remarks.

another right wing loser who thought everyone should be listening to what she had to say.

but when you start quoting Glenn Beck: the end is near.

Explanation of Shningeletron, Galt Moocher Eed, Eman, Whatever, FloriDUH, and all the racist, bigoted, slur slinging right whiners.

“Hodson and Busseri (2012) found in a correlational study that lower intelligence in childhood is predictive of greater racism in adulthood, with this effect being mediated (partially explained) through conservative ideology. They also found poor abstract reasoning skills were related to homophobic attitudes which was mediated through authoritarianism and low levels of intergroup contact.”

In this same study: "we found that lower general intelligence (g) in childhood predicts greater racism in adulthood, and this effect was largely mediated via conservative ideology"

The housing collapse started in 2006. the Great Recession started in 4th quarter of 2007.

I have asked many times - please list the legislation the Democrats passed in 2007 that created this recession.

I keep asking & dumbasses like you keep not answering.

Why is that?
